    Career

    Strickland was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the 18th round, 564th overall pick, of the 2007 MLB Draft. On July 22, 2009, he was acquired by the Pittsburgh Pirates along with Argenis Díaz in a trade with the Red Sox in exchange for Adam LaRoche.[1] In November 2012, the Pirates added Strickland to the 40 man roster to protect him from the Rule 5 draft.[2] On April 2, 2013, the San Francisco Giants claimed Strickland off waivers.[3] He was added to the 40-man roster on November 20, 2013.[4]

    Strickland was called up to the majors for the first time on September 1, 2014.[5]

    Strickland recorded the save in the longest (by time, tied for longest in innings) playoff game in Major League history,[6] the second game in the 2014 National League Division Series. The San Francisco Giants defeated the Washington Nationals 2-1 in 18 innings.[7]

    Strickland was called up on May 24, 2015, after posting a 1.66 ERA in 21.2 innings for the Giants' Triple A affiliate, the Sacramento River Cats.[8][9]
